Benza - Dulcedo Extra Virgin Olive Oil 500ml


Dulcedo is an extra virgin olive oil made with 100% Taggiasche olives cultivated in the hills bordering the Ligurian Riviera. Olive oil from Liguria made from Taggiasche olives, is considered by some to be the best olive oil in Italy because of the unique climate, and relative scarcity of the oil.


Dolcedo is the name of the territory of historical olive cultivation on the Ligurian Riviera, which has been taking place since the 1400s. This extra virgin olive oil is pressed within 12-24 hours of olive harvest, in a modern continuous-cycle mill, which preserves the high polyphenol content, valuable flavour compounds, and other nutritive components of the oil. The olives are picked while they are still green, making the harvest difficult and low yielding. However, this method ensures that the oil is rich, spicy, but also brings out the Taggiasche olive's natural sweetness on the finish.
